Pride(Selfish)

Updated on May 17, 2012

I need to swallow my pride so i wont choke on myself..esteem that is.

Once it gets broken and shattered to pieces after I realize I was not sitting up as high as i would have liked too,

Once I realize that everything didn't revolve around me though that is the way it seemed or the way I seen it aleast. But now there is no pride in my eye,

I can see clearly now. Life is what you make it but its not always about one person.

      Great insight into this human trait. Yes, when pride gets the best of us, inevitably it leads us into a fall. Awesome poem!

      Nice lines you got here. Sometimes pride is already a sin.Humility still is next to divinity , God has shown how it is to be humble and to be selfless.

      Once you fall into humility it feels better than all prided up.
